Change bbPress Role Text

In the above Screenshot, you’ll see user role of each member. Suppose,  You want to Change the TEXT “Keymaster” to “Admin” and “Participant” to “Member”. There’s an inbuilt bbp_get_dynamic_roles   hook you can use to change your own desired text. Make sure you put the file inside the functions.php file of your active theme. You can also change the role texts by customizing the bbPress file inside the child theme. But we have other options too. Let’s not get there now.

Here’s The Code:

function bbp_custom_role_names() {
return array(
// Keymaster
bbp_get_keymaster_role() => array(
'name' => 'Admin',
'capabilities' => bbp_get_caps_for_role( bbp_get_keymaster_role() )

// Participant
bbp_get_participant_role() => array(
'name' => 'Member',
'capabilities' => bbp_get_caps_for_role( bbp_get_participant_role() )
add_filter( 'bbp_get_dynamic_roles', 'bbp_custom_role_names' );
